A nurse who was practising at the Serdang Hospital and recently reported missing, has been found allegedly murdered with her body being discovered with small slash wounds at a condominium in Cyberjaya yesterday.
Updated: Police have arrested the remaining Nigerian suspect. He was arrested at 3pm today when he was spotted at the lower ground floor of Cheras Sentral shopping mall. He attempted to evade arrest and a scuffle ensued, but he was eventually arrested.
Selangor police chief Commissioner Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin said the victim was identified as nursing sister Siti Kharina Mohd Kamarudin, who was last seen in the parking lot of the hospital she worked at last Wednesday.
“She was found lying on the floor the back room of the condominium unit, with injuries to her chest, neck, and head,” he said adding that clothes, a knife and blood samples were taken as evidence from the scene.
Noor Azam said following investigations, two people were arrested, a 35-year-old Nigerian woman, and a Pakistani man aged 38, with one more Nigerian male suspect being hunted down.
“Investigations showed they (the suspects) were among the last few who were in contact with the victim before she went missing,” he said.
Siti Kharina was initially classified as a missing person after disappearing on May 10.
At about 2.30pm on May 15, he said, police received a tip-off about blood coming from a condominium unit in Cyberjaya.
“We rushed to the scene and found a body sprawled on the floor.” Noor Azam said.
Reportedly, it was the landlord who noticed blood flowing from inside the apartment.
According to Noor Azam, the body was discovered partially clothed.
“The Forensics Unit has been able to collect hard evidence from the apartment, including a knife, blood samples and clothing.
“We believe the victim has been dead for four to five days,” Noor Azam said.
The case is being investigated as murder under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
